Robert Pattinson returns to work as the production on The Batman resumes.

Two weeks back, it was announced that Robert Pattinson had tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19). This understandably resulted in production on Matt Reeves’ The Batman to be halted only days after it resumed filming outside of London, at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in Watford, England.

It has now been confirmed by Variety that Pattinson has recuperated and has been cleared to put on the cape and cowl once again. The publication also confirmed that any cast or crew members who were in close proximity with the actor were also quarantined and that sets continued to be constructed while cameras remained off. Now that Pattinson has been cleared, production has resumed.

Zoë Kravitz, who plays opposite Pattinson as Selina Kyle / Catwoman in the much-anticipated film, had already returned to the UK when production resumed the last time only for things to be shut down days later.
